An interview with Great Britain's Office for Civil Society Minister Nick Hurd is presented. He notes the changes to the lobbying bill and he dismisses the idea that budget cuts to his department mean the government views the charity sector as less important. He stresses the need of the civil society for an advocate inside the government. He acknowledges the work of civil servants with the Treasury on a social investment tax relief and their engagement with social enterprise partnerships.
